Four distinct cultures of Singapore

Experience the four distinct cultures of Singapore, its fast disappearing crafts and rare sights of the old "villages" where early immigrants lived. Begin the journey through time with a drive through "Little India" with its pulsating mood. See narrow streets; pass shop houses and stalls selling saris, aromatic spices and intricate old ornaments. Then enjoy a guided walking tour through Arab Street, the old Malay quarter of the city. See the Sultan Mosque and the colorful bazaar where batik cloth, carvings and basket ware stalls crowd the narrow sidewalk known as "the five foot way." Continue your journey to China Town, a place where many Singapore forefathers made their first homes. Explore the streets of Chinatown on foot and visit a local Chinese Medicine shop selling traditional medicines and herbs. Visit the Sri Mariamman Temple, the oldest and most important Hindu Temple in Singapore. Drop by a Chinese tea house and gain a greater insight into the traditional art of Chinese tea to understand its benefits and get to taste some yourself. Enjoy in a local handmade dim sum lunch after the tea appreciation session.
